About Shiva Shagir

I was born on April 1978 in Tehran, Iran. I began painting in early childhood. I've always been interested in classical oil painting on canvas and wood, my favorite is still life and figurative, although I work with charcoal, color pencils and pastels.

At the age of 15, I began to attend private classes with a well-known master in Tehran,  I learned from him for several years.  I moved to United States in 2000, since then I have worked with several different art galleries in twin cities and exhibited my art work in several art fairs. Besides painting, I enjoy pottery and interior design.
